What did the Wilson Gorman Tariff do?
Likewise, people ask, why was the Wilson Gorman Tariff important?

Secondly, what did the tariff of 1894 place restrictions on? court voided portions of the Wilson-Gorman Tariff Act of 1894 that imposed a direct tax on the incomes of American citizens and corporations, thus declaring the federal income tax unconstitutional.
Also know, how did the Wilson Gorman Tariff cause war?
Rough Riders - A group of cavalry volunteers in the US Army who fought in the Spanish-American War. Wilson-Gorman Tariff - This tariff passed by Congress in 1894 restricted US sugar imports.

What did the Underwood Tariff do?
The purpose of the Underwood Tariff was two-fold: To reduce the average tariff on imported goods. To compensate for lost revenue on tariffs, a rider to the act created a small, graduated income tax. The Underwood Tariff aka the Revenue Act of 1913 therefore re-imposed the federal Income Tax.
